5.0 out of 5 stars Superb bargain starter in the real blues 1 May 2012
By SH_ VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
50 tracks of authentic, mostly pre war mostly rural blues for less than a fiver. You'd be raving mad not to buy this if you are starting to take an interest in the real blues. From this double CD you can figure out easily which singers and which styles you are drawn to, ready for more in depth collecting later. For those who have a collection here's a great addition for the car, the bedroom, quick access to some all time favourites, whatever...

5.0 out of 5 stars Roll Call of the Blues 11 Jan 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Big Joe Williams, Bukka White, Muddy Waters, Sleepy John Estes, Son House, Mississippi John Hurt, Skip James, Blind Willie Johnson, Bo Carter, John Lee Hooker, Elmore James, Blind Willie Mctell, Robert Johnson, Charley Patton, Bukka White, Big Bill Broonzy and many more. It's like a roll call of the all-time great bluesmen, covering the spectrum of classic country blues! Fifty tracks for 2.49 probably makes this the most generous country blues compilation of all time! See Susan Gorman's review for a complete listing of the tracks.

5.0 out of 5 stars Some great music 26 April 2011
Format:Audio CD
This CD is ace, the music is old, scratchy and full of heart. It works in the car, at a dinner party and is great to relax to.

5.0 out of 5 stars Delta Blues 4 April 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Some of the tracks on this CD were 'scratchy', but given the age of the original recordings not surprising (possibly better material could've been found for those tracks affected)!

Overall a very good CD with a good collection of 'Delta Blues', not your normal selection of 'greatest hits' material.

Happy with the purchase.

Some nice old blues tracks. This wouldn't be bad choice for someone new to blues music, but a bit 'same old same old'if you've been listening for years. Read more
